Familysearch.org has Charity Murray christening 16 Feb 1840 at Port Royal, Jamaica. Father is Henry Murray and mother is Catharine.

She lived in Burke County Georgia. That’s not the same one. Thanks, though.
I have DNA matches with Rhoads, Ruth, Rhodes and other variations of that name.
Do you have birth years, marriage years or death years for  Charity and or Catherine? Did they both live in Burke County, GA all their lives or would you know of other locations too?

Charity Murray was in the 1850 U.S. Census inn Burke county, Burke, GA at age 6. Her father was Jesse Murray, age 32 and mother Sine E Murray age 30. In this census, Charity has three brothers, Timothy 11, William 10, Jasper 8 and Benjamin F 1. Her sister is Rosana who is 3. All members of this family were born in Georgia.

The 1860 US has the same family in the 58th District, Emanuel County, Georgia. Jesse has a different wife named Liucina. Tim, Wm, Jasper, Charity and Rosan are all present with no sign of Catherine. For some reason the family last name has gone from Murray to Mura.

Reason?  How about enumerator wrote what he heard?
Right on!
May not be a different wife in 1860; just different spellings by census enumerators.
Note same children.

re Mura: in my extensive research to find my ancestral Murray, I found many spellings. Yes, Mura was its pronunciation.

(My line is from indentured servant Richard Murray, arrived abt 1690 in Manokin Hundred, Somerset Co., Maryland's Eastern Shore (of the Chesapeake Bay),Verified in Judicial Records, Maryland Archives.He may have been the Richard baptised 1665 in Thurso, Scotland of Angus Murray -sourced from Scotland Baptisms, at Ancestry.)
